    Hi, Just wondering what peoples weight/size's are at that weight.

    me..size 22/24, 2 weeks ago, when I started this diet at 23st!
    I fit fine in my 22's now though.

    I find it amazing how people can be the same size and such a lot of weight less. for example, my mum is 15/16st and she is size 22..that was a whole 7/8 stone less than me, and we were wearing the same size clothes.

    I queried this a few months ago - when reading people's stats on here.. some people weighed a bit more than me but were in smaller clothes..

    I suppose it depends where you carry your weight and also how tall you are - someone who is shorter than you would weigh less then you but may wear the same size clothes...

    When I was in my teens, I was a slim size 12 and weighed 13 stone!

    I now weigh 262lb and I'm a size 22-24. My mum weighs much lighter than me and is the same size.

    Throughout my life, my weight has always been much greater than people "expect" it to be for my size. This is to the point that doctor's told me I was exceedingly overweight in my teens despite the fact there was no fat on me. I may have been a 12 but it was mostly bone! I've always just weighed heavy on the scales.

    For my current diet I'm trying to get to a dress size (for my wedding) rather than a target weight.

    when I started I was 18 stone 8 lb :cry: and was a size 24 ... now I am 12 stone 5 lb and a size 16 ( although had to buy size 14 jeans today in sainsburys as the 16's were too big :D) .. it is strange but like someone said .. its all about where you carry it . I plan to get to around 11 stone , although I will stop before if I feel happy or loose a bit more if I feel I need to .

    I'm 5'8 and starting at 14 1/2 stone and I'm generally a size 14 all over. When I was down to 13 stone I was between a 12 and a 14.

    It depends a lot on the cut of clothes and which shop though - last time I did Cambridge I went into Next and got 3 new dresses re re-fill my wardrobe - one was a 10, one a 12 and one a 14 and all 3 fitted perfectly!!

    I am somewhat chesty shall we say - but at the same time my ribcage underneath is very narrow. So if its a fitted style top I will usually be a 16 but if its more stretchy or t-shirt style where it can stretch on top and then shoot straight back in to nip in at my waist then I can wear a 10-12. Its insanity and makes buying clothes so damn difficult!

    I'm 5'7 and started at just over 17 stone. I was a size 22. Now I am weighing in at 14.12 and my size 20 bottoms are hanging off me but the 18's are a little snug. Pretty much all of my clothes are from Next. I am the same as someone else - I think I must carry my weight well because when I told one of my close friends my starting weight she was honestly and genuinely gobsmacked! I am a classic pear and my weight seems to be going from my top half first this time round. I wish I was 'chesty! I'm a 38/40 B and it makes getting dresses a flipping nightmare because the clothes that fit my body flap around my chest something silly! Keep saying I'm gonna get a cleavage transplant from my butt to my boobs!

    maybe we can do a deal and swap some - I need more in my butt but no matter how much weight I lose I remain a 32G!!!! That way we could both get clothes that fit perfectly lol

    I'm 5'4" and started off at 12st9 and I had had to go out and buy size 16's for work, and had one pair of 'large' 14's which fitted.
    I'm now 10st7 and wear mostly a 12 on bottom but some of the smaller 14's still fit, just are a bit baggy. My tops are still size 14, with a few 12's but have biggish boobies still.
